An alternative to NGASI

After using NGASI App Manager for several years, we were pretty unhappy to learn they were going out of business.

We took the opportunity to develop our own Java provisioning system, CoffeeCP.

CoffeeCP is available for cPanel, as well as Virtualmin and Webmin (with other control panels soon to come).

It can be provisioned via WHMCS or directly on your servers.

Unlike NGASI, CoffeeCP is not a Java application itself, so it has a very small footprint.

Also unlike NGASI, it is not a separate control panel, users access all functions via cPanel, Webmin, etc..

The cPanel version is built with JSON and PHP and the Virtualmin and Webmin versions are built with Perl.

So, no extra overhead.

If you are or were a NGASI user, or just want to add Java to your hosting offerings, have a look at CoffeeCP

All plans include Unlimited Installations, so you also have the benefit of a fixed monthly overhead and won't need to buy additional licenses for each VM or server you turn up.

If you are looking to turn up a full, Open Source GIS stack with the latest versions of all software, check out GeoHelm.

GeoHelm installs the latest, stable releases of

Apache Tomcat

It takes only 10 minutes to install

It also provides a UI within Webmin for managing all aspects of the stack (see screenshot below)

Best of all, it doesn't get tangled-up in the software, the module can be completely deleted with no impact on the stack.

Nominatim Server Script

We've had a lot of positive feedback from our OpenTileServer script.

With some prompting from users, we have added a script for Nominatim.

Nominatim is search engine for OpenStreetMap data.

You can get the information, as well as the script at OpenNameSearch.org

The script also includes an auto-updater and their is a reload script as well for loading multiple PBFs.

Thanks to the good folks at Geofabrik for providing OpenStreetMap extracts to the public.

Please post any issue at https://github.com/AcuGIS/OpenNameSearch
